This is an herbal medicine course.
For many women, the difficulty they are having is not with fertility but with maintaining a pregnancy once conception has occurred. From a Chinese medical point of view, there are many reasons why a woman miscarries. 80% of miscarriages happen within the first 3 months of pregnancy and these are by far the main ones Chinese medical practitioners will see in our clinics. Women who have difficulty conceiving and have conceived through artificial means are at a much higher risk for early miscarriage. It is important for any practitioner who is working with fertility patients to have a very good understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of habitual miscarriage.
During this one day seminar, Sharon Weizenbaum will share her primary treatment strategies for habitual miscarriage. Her experience in the last 3 years, as her diagnostic and treatment knowledge has matured, has been that 90% of her habitual miscarriage patients go on to have a healthy full term pregnancy. Students who attend this seminar will learn how to clearly diagnose and treat the most common types of habitual miscarriage that Sharon sees in her practice. You may be surprised that these causes are not what you think! Students will also learn how to interpret some of the western medical lab work related to the causes of habitual miscarriage.
Sharon Weizenbaum graduated from the New England School of Acupuncture in 1983 and has been practicing Chinese medicine for over 30 years. Her first gynecology teacher was Dr. Zhu Shu-rong from Shang Hai. In 1990 she traveled to Hang Zhou where she studied herbal gynecology with Dr. Qiu Xiao-mei as well as Chinese language. She continued her language study at Mt. Holyoke College and translates much of her own teaching materials. In 2007 she traveled back to China to study classic formulas with Dr. Huang Huang, who continues to be one of her teachers. She studied and apprenticed with Kiiko Matsumoto for 12 years and developed Integrative Mandala Acupuncture as a synthesis of her study with both Chinese and Japanese acupuncture teachers. Sharon is the director of White Pine Healing Arts clinic and educational facility. She teaches the Graduate Mentorship Program and Integrative Mandala Acupuncture nationally as well as shorter courses. Her articles have been published in The Lantern and in the North Amercan Journal of Oriental Medicine. She is known for her engaging, clinically relevant and clear teaching style.
Frequently Bought Together
Another great course from Sharon Weizenbaum! ~ Victoria
I love Sharon\'s ability to illustrate complex Shan Han Lun concepts in ways that are clinically useful. ~ Rebecca
Sharon, is great at breaking everything down so that it is easier to understand and use clinically. I enjoyed her use of classical references.
Overall, I enjoyed the seminar as it presented the idea of fertility and miscarriages related to the levels of yang ming, jue yin, shao yang, etc...
While we obviously learned these in school and often relate these concepts to certain formulas, I never think of them that much anymore and in many ways, they are the simple foundation to treating fertility. I will have to watch it again to really make this a more common part of my everyday thinking when diagnosing.
I love Sharon\'s courses! ~ Teresa
Sharon is a great presenter with a deep understanding of Classical Chinese Medicine and the experience to match. I can\'t thank her enough for sharing her wisdom! ~ Meagan
I loved the course and Sharon is a great presenter. Our learning could be expanded for those of us who have taken her other courses by using different case studies for this course than for the Shan Hun Lun gyn course. ~ Christina
Sharon is an excellent teacher! I will continue to take classes from her. I wish we had more time to delve deeper into the formulas and what types of symptoms would be present to use which formulas. She went over this to a point but it would be great to get deeper into it. Also, if we could have more of what the formula is used for written out in our notes it would be helpful. I find it hard to write as fast as she is talking and continue to keep up.
